Paying For 'Washington's' Failures (Especially Obama's)Topics: Political News and commentaries
If, like me, you're "tired of the 'shared sacrifice' that bankrupts the rest of the country while it enriches the Obama administration and its allies ... you'll definitely agree with John Ransom in finding the solution to the debt-ceiling crisis to be something along the lines of telling Washington to get past the bickering and, as we have in the past, to go sit in the corner and think about what he and his fellow Democrats have done, while the rest of us go about rebuilding what still can be the most dynamic economy in the world?:
... At the heart of the issue is freedom for us here at home, and for the rest of the world.Read it all.
The American economy is not the most robust, largest, most innovative economy because we're a big country. It's not the investment banker to the world because we have abundant natural resources. The economy thrives because all of us are given the freedom to become what we want by the virtue of our own merit.
That's the best head start that anyone can give a people. And believe it or not that's the currency that gives us the most credibility in the world too. And it's also what's in the gravest danger from Obama.
Obama wants to pick and choose the winners in the US economy. And judging by prosperity on Wall Street and Washington, he's succeeded.
So I say its way past time for finger pointing, fiery rhetoric and blame. If the GOP has a fault in this it's that they've failed to adequately stress how we got to the impasse in the first place. Please GOP: more fingerpointing, fiery rhetoric and blame.
For a handful of years and more Democrats have had things pretty much how they like them: Americans are angry and distrustful; we have nothing like an actual federal budget to work from; we're spending money profligately until we've found that we're out of money almost entirely. We have unions acting ugly and thuggly on TV almost nightly. We have a brand new war of choice to pay for too in Libya. Prices are up. Confidence is down.
So now, into this crisis steps BHO, activated by the confidence that only true ignorance can bring, to demand that we raise taxes just to protect the Washington bureaucracy that got us into the mess in the first place.
... It's time for Obama to eat his own peas.
It's well past time.
He's the guy that cooked them.
Ransom's absolutely right; it's indeed time for Americans to stand up and say NO to Obama's version of ... "shared sacrifice" that bankrupts the country and primarily enriches the Obama administration, the Democrats in both houses of Congress, unions, the NLRB, the EPA, the Federal Reserve, Barney Frank, Harry Reid, Bill Gross, Warren Buffet, George Soros, environmentalists, the GLBT lobby, the Department of Energy, the Department of Education, Fannie and Freddie, the AARP and most of Cook County, Illlinois. They're enriching themselves with our money ... and its time to end it. And any right thinking person, who wants the rest of the country to share in the type of prosperity they're having in Washington, DC needs to tell the politicians in Washington to support budget cuts without tax increases. "Shared sacrifice" needs to start in Washington.
Democrats Finally Face Reality - They Had Their Spending Spree (And Muffed It) (Time to put the Dems on a Diet.)
In Other Words, House Republicans Should Hold the Line on Cut, Cap, and Balance
